Thank you for your question.
Group B streptococcus (strep) is a common bacterium often carried in your intestines or lower genital tract. Group B strep is usually harmless in adults.
It is not spread by oral sex as far as my knowledge is concerned.
It is a bacteria that can be present normally in our gut and can also be present in the vagina.
It does not cause any significant disease in adults who are healthy.
However in people who are immunocompromised or in newborns it can cause a serious disease such as meningitis which is the reason why ladies who are tested positive for this bug in the third trimester must be treated for it even if they are not having any symptoms from it as it can be transmitted to the child and can cause serious problems.
In your case I would not worry whatsoever.
